Follow EzineArticles on Google+!

Now it’s easier than ever to follow us on Google+. We recently added a Google+ quick link button to our homepage for your convenience and easy access.

Not on Google+ or Not Sure?

By all appearances, Google+ lost steam after the mad rush to join the new social network in 2011. Many felt there wasn’t a following that could stand up to the likes of Facebook and followers of Twitter.

Google has made leaps and bounds in encouraging users to interact and engage with other users on Google+ by creating a passport system via Gmail, YouTube, or any other Google affiliated account. If you have any of these accounts, then you’re more than likely already on Google+ and it’s incredibly easy to start connecting with a fairly untapped audience that’s ripe for the picking.

In addition to posting status updates, videos, photos, and everything you typically do on Facebook or Twitter, here’s what you can do on Google+:

  • Easily organize followers, people you follow, friends, family, and peers via circles
  • Explore recommended and trending topics to keep a pulse on the Google+ community and the world at large
  • Huge real estate is given to your posts in the Home feed (e.g., videos, photos, and even GIF files)
  • Enormous cover photos that rival Facebook’s design cover – recommended size is 960 x 540 pixels (min. 480 x 270 pixels to max. 2120 x 1192 pixels)
  • Contribute or browse local reviews and what’s happening in your community
  • Get in touch with your audience and circles with Hangout (will live broadcasting to your audience be the next stage of video?!)

Sure, these bells and whistles are nice, but there’s one more thing that Google+ can help you with more than any other social media network and that’s Google Authorship.

Leveraging Credibility and Authencity with Google Authorship

Google Authorship helps you build credibility and amplify visibility in search results by linking your Google+ profile to the content you create. With Google Authorship, you will:

  • Create a digital signature that helps Google connect the relevant dots of your platform
  • Enhance transparency as a authoritative, verifiable expert
  • Increase trust to help achieve a higher click-through rate

Before you jump into Google Authorship, take the time to plan your Expert Author identity. When you’re ready, get on the Google Authorship fast track.

Having a Google+ Is an easy way to get a solid dofollow link. Google+ pages also frequently show up on the first page in Google for various searches as well so it’s pretty much a no-brainer spent 15-20 min. setting up an account.

Google+ is one of the major social media that any blogger should not missed. The Google authorship not only enhances the credibility, but Google use it as ranking signal. Apart from Facebook and Google+, Pinterest and Instagram are two other great social media that works. Although, both work in a different way as it use images. When it comes to driving traffic, both do well. Also, when it comes to credibility, I think Linkedin is a good one. I’m just beginning to explore linkedin and it seems the potential is good.

It’s totally your choice, but I thought you should know. You see, I’ve written a few articles, and seem to have gotten the hang of online article writing.

Absolutely agree with you on this. They have made many changes and ease of use is greatly improved. Navigating communities is great for networking. Also, for anyone that uses Blogger, it interfaces completely, being that Google runs Blogger.
